Mumbai, July 10: Sapna Bhavnani, who had made headlines after giving a unique haircut to MS Dhoni, shocked everyone as she revealed many unknown facts about her life.
Years after several incidents, Bhavnani, a former Bigg Boss contestant, finally chose to break her silence. In a post on social networking site Facebook, Bhavnani said that she was gangraped at the age of 24.
In the post she mentioned that she had moved to Chicago, US after her father's demise. Then she wrote about the night when she was gangraped by a group outside a bar.
She wrote, "One Christmas Eve in Chicago, I walked out of a bar alone late at night in a short dress and red lipstick. I was 24 and had been drinking, when from a dumpster a group of guys walked upto me and put a gun to my head asking me to give them blow jobs, eventually leading to gang rape."
The incident, however, could not shatter Bhavnani's free spirit. She, in her Facebook post, mentioned, "I remember walking home, showering and pushing this incident to the back of my mind for years and never letting it break my spirit - I still wear short dresses and the brightest red on my lips."
She also spoke about her love affair and marriage. Bhavnani, who is known for her bold attitude, too was a victim of domestic violence.
Sapna, a participant of Bigg Boss season 6, said, "It took me 20 years to voice my incident, but for me a woman keeping it all within her because she has no other choice isn't a sign of weakness - it's a mark of strength and something we need to start respecting."
Sapna's post has become viral on internet. This post has received more than 77,000 Likes and has been shared more than 7,000 times.
